The Suzuki KingQuad 750AXi dominates the Japanese manufacturer's sport utility ATV lineup and is engineered to tackle the toughest jobs and nastiest trails without breaking a sweat.
The 2013 Suzuki KingQuad 750AXi returns with a liquid-cooled, fuel-injected, 722cc DOHC engine that produces abundant torque, especially at low and medium revs, ensuring responsive acceleration in most situations. The cylinder is canted forward 48 degrees for a lower centre of gravity and reduced seat height.
New rubber mounts and a pair of balancer shafts result in low vibration and smooth performance. At the same time, components such as an efficient air filter with both paper and foam elements contribute to superior durability and less maintenance.
The CVT-type QuadMatic transmission, which was designed for maximum versatility and convenience, works with a compact, torque-sensing, limited-slip front differential for more powerful traction. Meanwhile, riders can easily shift from 2WD to 4WD or 4WD Lock using the handlebar-mounted push-button controls.
EPS is the key
When it comes to the chassis, the 2013 Suzuki KingQuad 750AXi benefits from a high-tensile steel frame (with a focus on achieving an ideal balance of rigidity and weight) and an independent rear suspension that offers 7.7” of travel.
Positioned high on the vehicle to help avoid water and debris, the compact and lightweight EPS unit (electric power steering) delivers lighter steering in a variety of conditions to mitigate rider fatigue. The key to comfort.
Other features worth mentioning on the 2013 Suzuki KingQuad 750AXi include a T-shaped seat with a tapered design for rider mobility and thick padding for support; an LCD instrument cluster with fuel gauge and range indicator; a storage compartment mounted on the right-side front fender; as well as a polyethylene skid plate that protects the machine's vital organs.
The base MSRP remains unchanged at $10,199. Colour choices include the traditional Terra Green, Flame Red, Black, and Yellow, plus a new True Timber XD3 Camo package and 30th Anniversary trim with Metallic Matte Royal Red. That's right: It's been 30 years since Suzuki invented the four-wheel ATV with the revolutionary LT-125.
Direct competition will come from the Arctic Cat 700, Kawasaki Brute Force 750 4x4i EPS, and Yamaha Grizzly 700.
